Measuring the Effectiveness of Sanctions in Sub-Saharan Africa
October 24, 2019
Sanctions have been used for decades as a part of the international community’s strategies to address crises in sub-Saharan Africa, but how effective have these strategies actually been? This event will bring together sanctions experts with civil society, banking, and former policymaker perspectives to discuss the findings of The Sentry’s new report on the effectiveness of modern sanctions in Sub-Saharan Africa. Panelists will consider how sanctions are used as a tool of foreign policy, the future of sanctions implementation to address African crises, and possible solutions to challenges presented in Africa-focused sanctions programs implemented by the United Nations, European Union, and the United States.
